Hey there,

we have workers recording data in the field and designed a smart form for the field maps app. There is some data the workers have to record which is the same everytime, like their name, the date, the name of the region. This data only changes every day when the worker goes to a new region, not every time they do a recording. The workers have to do numerous recordings every day and they also record data which is different for each recording (like number of animals).

Is there a way to specify these fixed data? We cant really set it as default, because the data still varies every day. But is there a way to maybe once write the data in the smart form and then it would be saved for the oncoming smart forms? 

 

Thanks for your help

Hi Judith

I see that FieldMaps supports recent values:

Reuse recent values

You can reuse field entries between forms to minimize repetitive data entry tasks. When mobile workers open another form after completing one, they can select from their recent entries to populate the new form. To use a recent value, select the entry where you want to use it, and choose the value from your available recent values.

Hope that helps.
